Thailand 2014 - Asiatique

WARNING: Picture dump!

Hello! Finally on to the next post about Thailand. So sorry for the *cough* delay! :D

Today's post is about Asiatique. :) I think this is a pretty new place in Bangkok. One of our students recommended that we go here. I also wanted to go here because of the ice cream mochi. I have never had Yukimi Daifuku and I really want to try it... So this will do for now! It's a similar thing. Hehe. (*^^*)

From the Grand Palace, we rode a Tuktuk to go to a ferry/boat terminal. :) We were dropped off here:

Smelled fishy, of course! :D

You can obviously tell this is a tourist place. :P Remember to "BEWARE HEAD!"  I wonder if there's a dangerous head here somewhere!!! And what is it a head of? :O

There are actually a lot of locals and tourists using this service~!

A view while on the ride. :)

We got off the last "port" and Asiatique was a few minutes walk away. We got a little lost though so it took longer than it should. :P

Alley cat.

And here we are!!! :D When we arrived there, 90% of the shops were closed. It was about 3pm. ; 3 ;
So, DO NOT go there so early. 5pm is a good time!

We were so, so hungry as we haven't had lunch. We went around and looked at the shops that were already open. We ended up at MK. Apparently, it's a popular restaurant chain in Thailand! :)

Yum. :)

Ooooh.



I looooove dumplings!

Oh my... I'm getting hungry. :(




Service was quick. Food was great! And the price is not too much at all. :)
VERDICT: Will come back!

They also give you a reminder of how much fatter you got after you ate there. HAHAHA.

Since there was nothing else to do, we took some shots. ^^

My, elephants can be really so heavy!

Lai looking around. You can see a lot of the shops are still closed!

What to bring home as omiyage?

And we found it! :)

Kanemochi is a play on word, for those of you readers who are neither my students nor speak Japanese. Kanemochi means "rich." :)


Mochi on a stick! How adorable! The shop staff also posed with us. :P I wanna eat one of these now! :(

There was a puppeteer/street performer at the center of Asiatique. I enjoyed many minutes watching him!

This adorable little girl was a great fan.

I saw her getting nearer...

And nearer! :D So cute! (*^^*)

We didn't do much after. ; 3 ; But for some shopping and food, Asiatique seems like a good place to visit! They also have a Ferris wheel/ observation wheel if you are interested! :)

See you another time!

Mordecai Came Home

Cutie patootie! :)

10 days ago, I was finally able to bring my pup home. It had been a long wait before I could get him, and it was worth it! :)

It was September last year when I first posted about my interest in getting a dog. But it was long before that when I first wanted to get one. I think I've posted something similar to what I'm getting at right now in a previous blog post right here.

Owning a dog is a CHALLENGE. But of course, I knew about that long before I decided to get a dog. I'd like to teach him tricks but we are having some difficulties right now. lol

Mordy is a very energetic dog! Oh right! His name is Mordecai (you know, from one of the key characters in the book of Esther). I thought that's a pretty cool name for such a cute dog. No offense but cutesy dog names are not my cup of tea. Hehe. I know lots of people name their dogs that way though. ^^;

Well, I know what you guys really want, THE PICTURES, so I'll just shut up now and give the floor to Mordy! :)

He's perfect. I even like how his nose isn't all black. Haha. That little quirk is beautiful to me. <3

Mr. Poop Monster

There you go. I do have a lot more pics but I think I'll leave you with these ones first! ^^ Okay now, I already got a dog. Must get a boyfriend next. lol
